Retrospective Study of MIBG Therapy for Phaeochromocytoma (PH) and Paraganglioma (PG): The Christie Experience Abstract #1002

Introduction: PH & PG are rare neuroendocrine tumors treated with MIBG but protocols are not standardized and reported results are variable.
Aim(s): Outcomes after MIBG therapy vary as there is no set protocol as to the dose or number of cycles given. We report results of seven pts receiving MIBG therapy for metastatic PH/PG.
Materials and methods: Retrospectively study: seven pts receiving MIBG [M/F 6/1 median age 31 yr] with metastatic PH (n=4) or PG (n=3) to evaluate efficacy tolerability & overall survival. Response assessed using clinical benefit biochemical markers and radiology.

Introduction: The Rx of malignant pheochromocytomas w/negative MIBG scan remains a challanging problem. Octreoscan is helpful in localization and Rx planning in such cases. Rx using SST analog & PRRT is a desirable goal.

#941 Comparison of Radiolableled Somatostatin Analogues and (131) I-MIBG Treatment for the Management of Patients with Metastatic/Progressive Phaeochromocytomas and Paragangliomas
Introduction: Radionuclide therapy has been used to treat patients with progressive/metastatic paragangliomas (PGGs) and pheochromocytomas (PCCs). To date, there is no study comparing (131)I-MIBG and peptide receptor radionuclide treatment (PRRT) in those patients.

#142 The role of 18F DOPA-PET in a case of malignant pheochromcytoma
Introduction: Pheocromocytoma is a rare tumor arising from chromaffin cells of adrenal medullary or extra adrenal paraganglionic tissue. Histological criteria cannot differentiate benign from malignant pheocromocytomas. The diagnosis of a malignant pheocromocytoma requires local invasion, recurrence and documented metastatic disease. The radionuclide scanning (123I - 131I-MIBG) is a fundamental diagnostic tool used to confirm the biochemical and radiological diagnosis of pheochromocytoma. In fact, MIBG scanning may confirm that the visualised lesion in an adrenal gland is indeed a pheochromocytoma and detect extra-adrenal paraganglionic tissue. However, MIBG scans are negative in around 15% of benign pheochromocytomas and in up to 50% of malignant ones. Other radionuclide techniques (18FDG-PET, 18F-DOPA-PET, 18F-FDA-PET) have been successfully used in investigation of pheochromocytomas. 18F-DOPA-PET and 18F-FDA-PET have been reported to be highly sensitive and specific for benign pheochromocytomas, while 18FDG-PET can be useful for malignant lesions with higher metabolic activity.
